When to drink wine.

…basically everyday. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, what have you. Kidding but…in a perfect world this would be the case. There’s nothing I love more than coming home to my cozy apartment and kitty after a long day, and cuddling up with a glass of wine and my homework for the night. In fact, I’m enjoying a glass as I type. Cabernet Sauvignon- delish.

Ok, before you assume that I’m a raging alcoholic let me state that I don’t drink wine EVERY night…just a fair amount of them. Plus they say wine is good for your health (ha).¬†What can I say? The only thing more relaxing is realizing I don’t have to wake up at the ass-crack of dawn on a Saturday morning¬†to work my filler job that I’ve been at since I was 15. My liver may play but a small price.

All you wine lovers out there, I’d like to share with you my absolute favorite wine currently on the market: Alamos Malbec.

Alamos-Malbec-2014-2-1024x546

Full, rich, smooth, creamy…heaven in a glass. I discovered this gem while living in North Carolina, after spending about 45 minutes to an hour in Total Wine and More. For those who don’t know what that is…it’s quite possibly the largest wine/beer store to ever exist and it’s also known as my future heaven. This wine is not only nostalgic and plain amazing, but it’s also budget friendly. About $10 for a 750 mL- not too shabby considering my post-grad entry level salary.

I’ve compiled a list of immediate needs for wine..in case y’all were wondering when it’s appropriate to have a glass- or five. This list will grow in subsequent posts.

When/Where it’s appropriate to drink wine (including qualifying life events):

  • holiday parties
  • work events (mostly to get through them)
  • to escape from social awkwardness
  • after a bad day
  • Wednesdays
  • in the presence of less-than-interesting humans
  • with your cat
  • in the shower
  • anytime really
  • Fridays
  • everyday
  • when you’re 23 and have no idea what you’re doing
  • because you can

Happy Monday, and Cheers!
